About the Author

Anise Rae grew up among the cornfields and soybeans of Ohio, dreaming of being a ballerina, an astronaut, and a romance writer. With no turn-out and a soul deep love of chocolate, her ballerina dreams floated away as high as the moon, equidistant with the astronaut aspiration. She stuck with writing. After 22 years, she got the call. Or rather, she got the email. Syphon’s Song, a 2012 Maggie Award of Excellence finalist, will be released March 3, 2014 from Lyrical Press.

Now transplanted to the South, Anise lives in Georgia with her family and a cast of characters that flit around in her head. A select few of those imaginary people are ever so grateful for their chance to escape into the real world of books. The remaining characters, enough to form an army, still clamor for freedom.

Could not stop reading this. Great characters. Great plot. Awesome use of knowledge on bigotry and it's victims. Loved how this book really got my bristles up and I wanted to stick up for these characters.

Wonderful characters and an interesting plot....world building at its best. Story makes you want to dive in and leaves you breathless for the next book!

I enjoyed reading this book much more than the first one. The plot was better, as were the characters! Aurora was a much better heroine than Bronte in my opinion. And Edmund was more interesting than Vincent, although I still like him too. I did think Edmund got over his family's betrayal a little too quickly. Unless I misunderstood, his Mom, whom I like less and less with each novel because of her high handedness (rude and annoying!) practically tried to kill him by getting the truth out of him. The villain was kind of easy to spot, but it did not detract from the story. Enjoyed it and was less confused reading this book than the first. If all the Nons are left out, I am less drawn to questioning this mage world and how it coincides with our world, if it does at all.

With a style as enchanting as her enchantress heroine, Aurora, author Anise Rae has created a setting that feels familiar yet is unlike any literary landscape I've traveled before. The corner diner at first seems ordinary, but the waitress casts a spell to keep the coffee hot, and an appliance repair shop is really a front for a workshop where magical metal limbs, including a heart, are created. The world of Enchanters Echo—Mayflower Mages Book 2—is also home to an enchantress who leaks clouds of glitter when she’s nervous. And Aurora has plenty to be anxious about. Not only is she the protector for a group of outcasts, but Aurora must also track down a force trying to destroy the territory, as well as decide if Edmund, a handsome heir, is worth her trust. Whew! Rae handles all these plot twists with ease and a subtle sense of humor. The tension between Edmund and Aurora adds to the fun, and a twist at the end reveals a villain I never saw coming. Combine all this with a fairy-tale atmosphere and you have an enchanted adventure that’ll leave you itching to read more of the the Mayflower Mages Series.

A world that is mage driven with plenty of mystery, danger and consequence to be found in making the wrong choice. Rae gives us plenty  of convoluted connections and divided loyalties as the power shifts from one clan / family to the next, not to mention those characters attempting to survive outside the more ‘official’ groups in the society.  With light and dark magic, inherited territories and a strictly defined  series of laws to define and control the country.  Aurora is a wonderful character: she’s an enchantress who wants to stay out of the limelight. Her particular talent is to work with metals and metal-implants, she can fix just about anything. Her hideout is in a junkyard where she is busily repairing items. The items aren’t an  issue, but her work on people, particularly metal-enhancements for them is highly illegal.  Not interested in being controlled by or  indebted to any of the ruling families, she tries to keep herself off the radar.  When she is confronted with a metal eye by Edmund Rallis, the heir to one of the most powerful territories, their former connection and his ultimate fascination with her starts us on a roller-coaster ride of ups, down, adventure and danger with plenty of ooh moments for the  romance.  See, Edmund is a bit of a contradiction: he believes in his family’s power and the rules of the republic, but he doesn’t always feel comfortable in his position. A bit stuck in his ways, Aurora and the love he has for her despite the differences in their outlook, position and willingness to flaunt the law is steadfast. He is steadfast and unwilling abandon his love for her despite these potential pitfalls. I not only adored his loyalty for Aurora but his determination to live up to the expectations of his birth and position, showing a determination  and solidity of character that proved just how far he will go for what he wants. As the two work to unravel the mystery surrounding the newly opened rift in the bond / barrier for Edmund’s family as they try to explore and uncover what is between them. Although I wished that the demarcations between Aurora’s and Edmund’s magic was clearer, it’s either rude or illegal for them to discuss the details.  What does appear, however, is the solid play and interplay between the two as they  struggle for answers both to the mystery and their relationship.   Wholly engaging with plenty of imaginative elements put together in new and different ways, with a romance that is wonderfully built and  not overly angsty despite the characters being more different than alike at first, I couldn’t stop reading and now have to get the first in this series.  I received an eArc copy from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.  I picked this up because I've been in more of a fantasy/sci-fi sort of mood, rather than a paranormal one. The concept was interesting, so I picked up the first book in the series to review as well. And I really, really liked Syphon's Song. So this may be the very first time in my long life as a reader that going back and reading the first book(s) in a series made things harder rather than better. I read Enchanter's Echo immediately after Syphon's Song, and I was just disappointed. It took me a bit to figure out why. And that was because while I became interested in this book based on it's own blurb, when I went and read the first book, there was a character whose story I wanted more. I really wanted Selene's story, and this wasn't it, heck they didn't even mention her. But that is not the fault of Enchanter's Echo. So I went back and re-read it for itself, and with that in mind, and I liked it much better. I enjoy the world building and the premise, and I liked how each main character's secrets unfolded. They just have such natural balance and symmetry, and the heroine is not remotely weak or dependent. The villain wasn't obvious, and they weren't just a cardboard cutout of a person either. They weren't entirely 3 dimensional, but they weren't bad either. My one complaint about this book is I consider the ending a bit of a dues ex machina, and it was hard to get past that. I think the author may have written herself into a corner there, but it wasn't awful. Overall, I am giving this 3.5 stars, and I am more than interested in reading the next book, even though I expect it STILL won't be Selene's book.
